Walgreens Exclusive “Prototype” Boba Fett Star Wars Black Series Action Figure

Walgreens Exclusive “Prototype” Boba Fett Star Wars Black Series Action Figure

The Blot is still amazed that Walgreens releases high end, store exclusive action figures for the adult collector, but I say keep ‘em coming! Following Walgreens release of their exclusive The Walking Dead “Prison Attire” Rick Grimes figure comes this beautiful “Prototype” Boba Fett Star Wars Black Series figure. This is the kind of release that’s going to make Star Wars fans around the globe flock to their nearest Walgreens and camp out until they can get their hands on one of these monotone Boba Fetts.

Original Boba Fett Star Wars Concept Artwork by Ralph McQuarrie

This release marks the return of the original, original Boba Fett. As explains, “While Boba Fett’s iconic Mandalorian armor has become one of the most famous designs in all of Star Wars, it started out with a very different color scheme. In early concept art by Ralph McQuarrie and Joe Johnston, seen in the photo above, the bounty hunter was depicted wearing sleek, all-white armor. On June 28, 1978, Star Wars sound designer Ben Burtt and The Empire Strikes Back assistant film editor Duwayne Dunham debuted the costume with a test video (seen here), detailing its weaponry and functionality; the colors would later be developed to what has become Fett’s definitive look, but it all began with this early version.”

The “Prototype” Boba Fett Star Wars Black Series Action Figure stands 6” tall and comes with all of the accessories seen here. It will go on sale at Wagreens everywhere this fall, with preorders opening at San Diego Comic-Con later this month.
